Hello @Ruben Rodriguez


I dont believe rebooting the server is going to actually resolve the issue permanently. What needs to be done is to identify the cause of the issue. If you have ssh access to the server I would suggest checking the logs - specifically /var/log/messages if the issue occurs again. I would also recommend restarting nscd with the following:

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_nscd
If you get any errors when running this please let us know.


Thanks!
